Jennifer loves Corktraders

Jennifer's Reviews recently featured a flattering post about Corktraders...

"Have you ever been to a wine trading/swapping party? That’s a party where everyone invited brings a bottle of wine to swap with other guests at the party! You have an opportunity, depending on whose invited, to walk away with a new tasting challange on a wine you may never have had the opportunity to try!  Now, take that local party concept and multiply it times the World Wide Web and you have one heck of a wine swapping party!"

Most wine enthusiasts have attended or at least heard of a wine swapping party. It’s an event where everybody brings a bottle (or two), and before the evening is over they’ve swapped their bottle for someone else’s. There is typically plenty of wine-talk and everyone usually leaves having made a new friend.

Corktraders in a Nutshell is an online community where subscribers around the globe can come together to trade (or “swap”) their wine. Corktraders was developed as an alternative for connoisseurs to reallocate their collection without incurring the commissions or transaction fees associated with traditional wine sales or auctions.
